One by one - the conservatives are being purged.
Started with Allen West.
Now we got Bachmann.

God forbid they investigate the Kenyan for millions of dollars in illegal foreign campaign donations.
Did you forget Governor Sarah Palin, Sheriff Joe Arpio, Governor Scott Walker and many others?
It is interesting that these groups feel ownership of home schooling families. Revealing the ugly underbelly of the conservative movement is not in anyone's interest.
Would it be out of line to think Ed Rollins might be behind this?
Mr. Squeaky Clean? How can you even think that?
Commie Obama’s Gestapo are hard at work, again.
Commie Obama did promise to fundamentally change America.
